Display adjustment for hydrogen vehicles

News from Moditech Rescue Solutions BV

In last month’s database update, the colour of the hydrogen system was adjusted. The vehicle fuel tank is displayed in green in the Crash Recovery System. The colour of the hydrogen tank and fuel cell has been adjusted in order to make you, the emergency responder, more aware of deviating key focus areas in hydrogen vehicles. The hydrogen tank for the storage of hydrogen and the fuel cell for the conversion to electricity are now shown in blue. This colour corresponds to the colour as agreed in the ISO standard.

DISPLAY FOR HYDROGEN VEHICLES  
In last month's database update, the colour of the gas cylinders for the storage of hydrogen gas was adjusted. The vehicle fuel storage is displayed in green in the Crash Recovery System. The colour of the gas cylinders has been adjusted in order to make you, the emergency responder, more aware of deviating key focus areas in hydrogen vehicles. The cylinders for the storage of hydrogen gas are now displayed in blue. This colour corresponds to the colour as agreed in the European ISO standard.

WARNING!
Hydrogen is colourless, odourless and tasteless. When hydrogen burns, it does not produce a visible flame, but these flames reach temperatures of > 2000 °C / 3632 °F!
In this video you will see the venting of a hydrogen gas installation. Only with the help of a thermal imaging camera can you clearly see how far the flames reach.

A hydrogen drive can also be found on buses. This type of drive is increasingly being used in the vehicle industry and hydrogen-fuelled buses are increasingly common in big cities. Be prepared with the help of the Crash Recovery System! Know what's inside!

EXERCISE SCENARIO TOYOTA PRIUS WITH SOLAR PANEL

This month on our website (exercise scenario 3) we have prepared a new exercise scenario that can be used for training with the Crash Recovery System. This is a scenario in which a Toyota Prius with a solar panel is blocked on both sides and two victims are involved. By using the icons in the Crash Recovery System and a number plate, you can easily set up an older vehicle as a modern vehicle. Rescuers in other regions, can utilize a license plate or model from their area for the the type of vehicle used in the exercise. Did you use the exercise scenario? Share it with us on Facebook. Questions or feedback? You can reach us at training@moditech.com.

Finally, we would like to wish you a wonderful 2018.
We thank you for the trust you have placed in us and are happy to be of service again in the new year!
